    Volatility - What Does It Mean?

    As related to the General Market - it means much and is an Excellent Indicator. Actually, it is an Inverse Indicator and that confuses most Investors.

    There are now several good ETFs, but you are playing with a loaded gun.

    The stats are sometimes as wild as it comes.

    Today with the Dow and Nasdaq DOWN approximately one percent the (VIX) CBOE Market Volatility Index was UP over (8%) eight percent. With the Pull-Back, this past month, the VIX is UP 35%.

    I'll try to add a Graphic to my StockCharts / PublicList soon and comment on Volatility from time to time.
